    Years ago, I was sitting at a picnic table in the Yankees' clubhouse when Pete Sheehy, the ancient clubhouse man, plopped down opposite me. I asked him, "Pete, you knew Ruth -- what was he like?" Pete thought for a moment, and said, "He never flushed the toilet."

    If not for his wartime service, he may have hit 800 home runs.
